  • If a picture paints a thousand clicks

       February 11, 2010

    With all due respect to Bread (who clearly have 3-4 of the wussiest love songs of all time - if I were to make such a list), sometimes a picture also paints a thousand clicks.

    Playing around with some web traffic stats, here's a few interesting tidbits.

    This is traffic to a fish fry blog I write for. The traffic spikes you see are on Fridays. In one sense, it's obvious that people search for fish fry content on Fridays, but in another sense it's interesting to know that people don't plan their fish fry adventures more than a day in advance.

    Here's a snapshot of US traffic to this website. As you can see, during this time period, most of our traffic came from Wisconsin & Minnesota. Is that because of where we're located or because of my rabid Brett Favre hatred? The analytics say it's a little bit of each.

    Finally, the chart above gives us some pop culture insight. Looking at this traffic searching for words around "ugly sweaters" I can pinpoint exactly when hipsters start planning their ironic Ugly Christmas Sweater parties and bar crawls. Basically, while some people shop the day on Black Friday, these folks start scouring the web for info and ideas for their parties. Imagine how thrift shops could use this information to figure out how to best stock their stores. If you've got ugly sweaters out in early November, you're just wasting space. Hipsters don't plan!

    Bread does have a #1 from that great musical year of 1970, however.

    On a related note, foods are underutilized as band names. Pork 'n Beans ought to be a band somewhere. So should Omelette.
